Yesterday was a complete loss. I got a pretty severe migraine early in the day. Not the usual annoying ones, this one was the kind with deep, hot pains running over my scalp. It felt like someone shoving a hot poker through random parts of my head. One attack hit while I was walking down the stairs with a basket of laundry. I started crying before I had even really registered the pain. After the third or fourth lightening bolt across my head, I decided to take the heavy duty medicine. I hate taking the stupid nasal spray. It works about half of the time, sometimes it can cause rebound migraines. It seems to have worked this time, but not 100%. I still have pains through my brain and just under my scalp, my shoulders and neck are stiff and sore, and my stomach is a disaster. Hopefully the pain stays to a manageable level today. I have a really long to-do list to get through and frankly, I have too many lost days.
